"The British admiral has informed the

ranaiim Stop Caiuil.
Work upon tho Panama Ship Canal appears, from nil reports, to be
j-pushed forward with all the energy
that 'circumstances will permit. Much
of the work already done, and much
of the 810,000,000 already expended,
has been preliminary to actual work
upon tho canal proper. Extensive
"lh(\ mimito surveys have had to be
made, material has had to be got together, provision for tho health of the
Workmen has had to bo furnished,
contracts have had to bo let, and contractors have had to havo time to
build, .n'lachinery and transport it to
UVe placo of operations.
HKAVV WOIIK TO BKOIN.
. The first work upon the canal pro-
'per will be begun in November, and
thia inauguration, if it may be ao
termed, of an enterprise in which the
''Hole world has a most lively interest, will 1>6 ii special cause of rejoicing
to San Francisco, inasmuch as San
Franciscans will perforin tho work and
."with machinery mado by San Franciscans.
H. B, Slaven, the druggist, M. A.
Slaven, his brother, nnd P. Huorno,
all of this city, some time ago secured
the contract for dredging seven miles
nf tho canal between Colon and Gatuu.
This contract calls for the excavation
of 0,000,000 cubic muters of material,
the amount received from which Work
will be, about §2,000,000. The contractors were enabled to eoci.ro the
work by reason of thoir ability to
supply a dredging machine that will
Work more efficiently and more cheaply than any othor that could bo brought
to tho notice of the canal authorities.
The machine was invented in this city,
and upon securing tlio contract Messrs.
Slaven and Huorno gave an ordor to
the Golden Stato Iron Works for
building one. That order has now-
boon filled, aud the machine is now
being delivered.
TUB MBW DUinaiNO MACHINE.
The dredging machine is not an experiment, there being at present one
>f tho inme kind, out Considerably
imaller, in active operation at Union
'aland, in the Sacramento River.
Phis machine is capable of handling
KM) cubic yards nor hour, and in four
iionths has dredged a canal live and
hree-quarter miles Jong, eighty feci,
ride, and cloven feet deep. Such ii
lachino, but with almost double tho
apacity, haa just been built hero for
seat'Colon. The dredging machinery
•ill bti bantained ill it boat one Iiitn-
rcd foot long, fifty feet wide, and
wive feot deop, Tho machinery
self ia strong and inasaivo, aa woll us
■inplicate'd.     The   principle   iipoil
which tbe dredger is constructed is
that of a series of large buckets attached to an endless chain. Tho chain
is composed of links of solid iron about
four fqet long and eight inches widq,
to every alternate One of which a
bucket containing one and one-half
cubic yards is bolted, This line contains thirty-eight buckets, and extends
from a tower 'fifty feet high near the
copter'of tho boat down through a
largo Blot running from tho how many
feot toward, thu stern. Tho lino of
buckets, with ita endless chain, passes
over a tumbler, or revolving cylinder
at the top of the tower, and over
another beneath find in front of the bow
of the boat. This latter tumbler is so
supplied with gearing, working from a
derrick, that > is can j be raised or lowered at will, thus ma«i|te the depth of
the cut greater or le'sB*.'
CAPACITY OX Tlli MACHINE.
Tt is capable of making a cut ahont
thirty-fivo feet below tho wator. In
order to cut from one sido of the canal to the other, tho boat itself is made
to swing on a pivot at the stern. This
pivot consists of a large post passing
through tho boat and driven into the
mud beneath. On this the boat is
owung from.side to side, and whon a
new cut is to bo . made it is raised, the
boat is moved forward, and it is again
driven into the mud. Tho earth that
is excuvuted is carried by the buckets
to tho tower fifty feet above the deck,
where it is emptied into a chopper loading to a thirty-six-inch pipe. This
pipe extends from tho tower across
the bank of, the canal, and is ovor
one hundred and fifty feet in length.
All tire excavated material is thus
dumped along the sides of the canal,
serving to make them higher when
naturally low. The material can also
lio carried over banks forty feet high
and dumped far away from the canal.
To run all of the heavy and com plicated machinery that wiil lit* contained
on the boat four or five different
engines are required.
THE COST OF KXCAVAl'ING.
The cost of excavating is less than
one cent per cubic vard, and tho capacity of the dredger is about 15,000
cubic yards per day. As has been
stated before, the machinory for ono
dredger has already been built, aud
last week a contract was signed for
two moro, making three in alt. This
part of the work will cost ¥150,000.
1VOIIK TO BEGUN AT COLO**-,*.
Onco at Colon, work .V'iU be begun
on tho canal. The roulo to (.latun
runs through a swamp, which haa
already boon cleared of trees, and such
stumps as remain will be pulled tip by
the stump-puller on the boat, A canal one hundred feet wide and eight
feet deep will firat be dug from Colon
to Gatun, in order to give the Canal
Company watercomniunication to that
point, and when that is completed
the dredgers will proceed to exanvntie
the remaining sixty-five feet iu width,
and will 'hen dredge the canal to
the requisite depth of thirty feot.
This work, it is estimated will be performed in one your and one-half. At
Gatun thore i3 a considerable elevation
of tho land, and as tho dredgers cannot handle material much over twelve
feet above the surface of the wator,
workmen are now engaged in leveling
the ground on the line of the canal so
that dredging can bo pushed ahead.
Messrs. Slaven A liu erne will seek to
obtain contracts for other sections of
the work ou that side of the Isthmus,
and will also make bids for work .to be
done on this side. . In case they obtain
contracts for dredging on the Pacific
Bide, several moro dredgers will havo
to bo built here. The boats will also
bu built, iii this city and then towed
down to Panama* M. A. Slaven is
now at Panama on business connected
with the canal' and H. B. Slaven will
shortly go to New Yurk on similar
Business.
DEATHS AMONO CANAL MEN.
H. B. Slaven, who has visited tho
Isthmus several times, remaining thero
one or two months each timo, states
that the reports rotating to the deatliB
among those employed by the Canal
Company are not founded on facts.
He gives tho following figures showing
the number of persons employed, each
month during tho months of 1881, mid
the number of deaths:

Uli! Consistency!!
"Witli cho groat vocoinmeildation of
"consistency he cannot fail to be
"a valunhlo monitor of tlio Beavtin
"Administration.''
Such are the concluding words of
i> leading nrticlo in Wednesday's
Standard upon tho subject of Ml'.
Armstrong's entry into the Beaven
cabinet, and tho following historical
record will tend to show how deserving that gentleman is of tlio encomium bestowed by the organ:
Last winter, upon' tho resignation of
Mr. Brown, Mr. Armstrong was
elected as en .Independent; but lie
was no sooner elected than he set
himself to'worl^ to wriggle into the
Walkem cabinet. His efforts to accomplish that object were continued
till some time after the House met;
but becoming satisfied that he could
not force himself into' that cabinet as
a fourth minister, he wont over to the
Opposition, and he continued to be
-one of the most pronounced Oppositionists during tiie remainder of
the session. Tiie general election
soon followed, and lie sought and obtained re-election as an Oppositionist.
When it became known that the
■ election had gone against the Gov-
■ ernnient, ho hastened to write to
prominent Oppositionists, congratulating titeni upon "our glorious victory." Realizing very soon, however, tliat one of the members-elect
might possibly impede his "march
to glory," he became discontented,
;anil was suspected of coquetting with
the Government Eu that as it may,
ho still continued to act and talk
-with tlie Opposition, attending their
councils and sharing their secrets.
As a convenient means of assisting
tho Lieutenant-Governor to reach a
definite conclusion it was determined
■that the members should join in
'■what is commonly known as a
' "round robin"—a document in terms
autliorizingtho leader of tho Opposition to inform the Lieutenant-Governor that they, the signers, had no
confidence in tlio present Government. Mr. Armstrong was the very
first io sign that document 1 Ho signed it on tho lltli inst, pledging his
honor to secrecy; and yet on the
14th inst, ho went to Mr. Beaven
and told him what was going on, and
mado tho final demand—"A portfolio or your life!" The Premier,
caught iu the door, capitulated, and
thus tho man "with tho great recommendation of consistency" wns enabled to force liis way into tho cabinet There still remains another, and
in some sense darker, count in tlio
indictment to which Mr. Armstrong
will bo called upon to plead before
the election is over.
The case above narrated is a striking instance of allowing an inordinate desire for oflico to override
one's reason and trample on one's
manhood. Thoso things which
should be most prized havo been bartered away; and for what, Three or
four months of office at most, and
then political disgrace and deathl
But it is morally certain that the
present combination by courtesy colled a ministry cannot survive the
next few weeks. Before instituting
the pending proceedings to unseat
Mr. Hett and giving tho two thousand dollar bonds required by statute, those having tho matter in
charge made it their businoss to ascertain beyond all doubt that two of
those who voted for Mr. Hett at the
Esqnimalt election aro still on tho
Cariboo voters list, and consequently,
disfranchised, That thoso two votes
will be struck off by tho Court is
quite indisputable. It will be remembered that Mr. Hett's majority
over Mr. Pooley was only one. To
strike off these two votes would,
therefore, be to leave Mr. Hett in a
minority of ono and give Mr. Pooley
the seat by a like majority. Now
surely even tlio organs will not ask
the public to believe that with the
Attorney-General unseated and a
prominent Oppositionist in his place,
any further tinkering witli the cabinet would lie attempted ! But Mr.
Armstrong hns not yet boon re-oleot-
ed, and it would bo strange indeed
if he is not rejected by such a booming majority ns shall orect a gravestone, a standing warning against
political prostitution I Looking nt
the matter from  the lower stand
point of mere temporary pecuniary
advantage, New Westmiuster has
everything to lose ond nothing to
gain by condoning this shamoless
act of political treachery. Doubtless
Mr. Armstrong will ceme bnck with
profu*so promises. *A"niarrcapable
of doing what he hns done to gain
office would promise anything to retain it. But of what possible value
could such promises be 1 No grant

lativc sanction, and even assuming
■that the new House found in power
these men who havo so strained the
constitution and polluted tho political arena, one of-its1 first acts would
be to sweep them away. What would
become of Mr. Armstrong's fine
promises then! The city would have
becouio alienated from the district
and from tho rest of the province,
having only tho defeated party to
look to for consolation. -Self-respect
gone, despised by its neighbors, the
Royal City wonld scarcely stand in
very great favor with the dominant
party. It will bo seen, therefore,
-tliat every consideration of sound
•molality and self-respeit, as well
as every consideration of self-
interest points out the duty of
this constituency to be to place
its stamp of disapprobation
upon this crowning act of political
perfidy. Not only has Mr. Armstrong assured MessrB. Beaven k
Hett that h'e can eafily handle his
own constituents, but that ho has
one of the district members at his
back as an obedient follower. It is
for the city to contradict tho former.
It rests with Mr. Orr to givo the lie
to the hitter.
Before carrying round -for signature the requisition for Mr. Ami
strong at tlie late general election,
Mr. Orr had his most earnest und
saered assurance that ho was an twt-
cmpromiebig opponent of the pn
sent Government, and it was on that
assurance that signatures were obtained. Had it not been for that it
is quite certain that Mr. Armstrong
would havo been opposed, and it is
tolerably certain that ho would have
been beaten. Messrs. Robson and
Orr were elected for tho district, and
tho prevailing theory both in town
and district was that the trio, being
one in political sentiment, would
work together as one man, and that
thus, although shamefully under-
represented in the Legislature, the
Lower Fraser would at least have a
strong, because united, team in the
new House. But Mr. Armstrong
lias, by his recent scandalous act
completely broken up that programme—effectually ostracised himself from the district members,
placing himself in such a position
that it will not bo possible for them
to continue to act with him, and if
the city slionld commit the blunder
of endorsing his conduct in this re
sped, it, too, will inevitably suffer
tho consequences ot isolation and
disgrace.	
When Mr. Beaven was up bore a
few weeks ago, hunting for an attorney-general, ho expressed very different views of Mr. Armstrong's fitness
to be a cabinet minister from those
expressed by his organs now. In reply to Mr. Brown's suggestion that he
should tako Mr. Armstrong into his
cabinet, Mr. Beaven said:—"He is a
dead weight which no Government
will ovor attempt to carry aguin—a
wet blanket on any party"—and he
went ou to characterize bim in language anything but flattering, declaring that he had, by his recent double-
dealing and eagerness for otlice, completely killed himself with both parries. And yet he has takon him into
his cabinet! How desperately hard
pressed the Premier must have been!

Tub Popb's Health.—In tlie course
of liis sermon at St. Michael's Cathedral, Toronto, on tho 6th inst. Archbishop Lynch mado a fow remarks
concenijng the health of Jjoo XIII.
The Archbishop, said IhaV the . Popo
waa, when he last saw him, enjoying
better health than he ever had since
ho had occupied tho chair of St, Peter.
The reports scattered by the papers
about his health wero not generally
true. He did not give as many audiences as Pius IX,, but spent liis timo
in attending personally to tho affairs
of the Church, wrote a good many
autograph letters, uud devoted himself
a good deal to literature. Hence was
it given out tlmt he was,, unwell. At
present ho was having much trouble
with the King of Italy, who, liko
Henry VIII., wanted eourt'erTbishupB
—worldly men, and not mon devoted
to the Church. The Pope has .appointed twenty-two bishups to vacant
soee, but the King would uot let them
tako possession of them.
The Oak una the Ivy.
Tho "massive oak" and tlieVleafy
ivy" aro seloctod by our local contemporary as most fittingly representing
the Cohmist and the Columbia**. A
great deal of ink has been wasted by
the same writer in an attempt to make
the public think the Cohmist anything
but a "massive oak." Having mado
the extraordinary assertion that it has
"all tho subscriptions, advertising, and
job work we (it) can manage," our contemporary sayB: "Wo have only to
mention one fact for public information, we are paid much higher rates
for all we do than our local cotem."
It is a very common thing fur ono to
proclaim the cheapness uf his wares;
but since the world began, we never
before heard of such a boast as tho
above. Read it, you who have advertising and job work to do; "and don't
you forget it."

In a letter to the Irish bishups, dated 1st inst., His Holiness the Pope
expresses profound regret that tranquility has not been restored in Ireland and tlmt murders continue tn be
committed. Ho Bays tho Irish people
by following tho advice of their prelates may hope for alleviating the ilia
from whieh they sutler. A just cause
must be upheld by just means. Secret
societies must be shunned and in tlio
words of Saint Augustine, tho first
characteristic trait of liberty is the
non-commission of crimes. The priests
ought to be active supporters of order
during the present trouble. The letter concludes hy expressing the hope
thnt the English Government will do
justice to all classes of Irish people,
.remembering the pacification of Ire
la.id constitutes an element of tranquility iu the whole empire.

Tho now public school building in
this city is nearly completed. It only
remains to provide seating and desk
accommodation, and it is hoped that it
will be ready for occupation in tho
course of a week or ton days. The
main building is 07x35 feet, two stories
high, with 14 feet ceilings. Tho lower
flat is divided so as to give two schoolrooms 2G£x.15 feet, separated by a hall
12 foot wide r.uuning clear across the
building. The doors very properly all
open outward,, (rifed the windows are
hung with weights and pullies. The
school-rooms are well proportioned aud
well lighted, but we entertain some
ijloubt about th'A means of ventilation
being adequate. The walls of these
rooms aro wainscot ted and provided,
we sTiould think, with a superabundance of blackboard accommodation—
imparting, as it does, a somber aspect.
The flooring, and, indeed, all tho
work, in substantial nnd good. Tho
upper flat rt>n*ain:i unfinished for tlm
present. Coining to the exterior of
the building, the impressiou is less
favorable. The architectural otfect produced, is not of tho happiest. Tho
sfcruci-uro is massive enough, and woll
finished in rustic, with good roof projections aud finishings dud nil tlmt:
but somehow, one cannot quite overcome the feeling that one is looking nt
an hospital or a nail factory, instead uf
n modern educational building of such
architectural pretensions as this city
had an undoubted rtfjht to aspire tu.
There is a want bf thnt happy proportion and graceful outline which please
tho oye, and u not very successful attempt at a porticu affords no relief to
the disappointed and weary gwe
When seated^ tho building will ropre-
present a cost uf about two thousand
seven hundred dollars, with tho upper
lint tmflntshod aud no out-buildings or
water supply. Undoubtedly tho building is nu immense improvement jipim
what it would have buen hnd not tho
Trustees energetically and successfully
remoii^intiid .with tho Government
when tho original plans came to hand;
but,.Kg cannot think it coiuc.-i up tij
what New Westminster hnd a right to

Royal "Vi\y Planing Mills.
The Salmon Caso Industry.
A short while ngo a sketch of tha
Royal City Planing Mills wns presented in theso columns. Since then several important additions have been
made to that nlready extensive establishment. Tliese additions have it
special reference to tho manufacture
of cases or boxes for packing tinned
salmon, a branch of industry which
has already attained large proportions.
These additions consist uf a re-sawing
circular for cutting up slabs into box
bottoms nud tups; a re-sawing gang,
contiisting of six blades, for striving
BtuiT for tho sides of boxes; a double
cut-utF circular Baw for( cutting tops
aud bottoms exact length; a cut-ofT
circular saw for ends aud sides; throe
-rip sizing saws; small'sizing planers for
sides aud ends;-and then conies the
printing machine, through ffhicJLtho
ends aro passed with wonderful velocity, coming out with the designation
and trade-mark, &c, dfj th'ej, tialftry
establishment clearly impritited. Of
these-pieces of machinery, probably
tho Arab mentioned possesses mubt interest, particularly as it is in several
vital respects an invention of one of
the proprietors (Mr. David McNair),
for which it is his intention to secure
a patent. This machine certainly does
its work admirably, and it is eminently
economic, inasmuch us by its introduction the proprietors are enabled tc
man uf act uro nil tho slabs hitherto
wnsted,_ which is n very importnnt consideration as saw-logs become scarcer
and dearer. With tho very complete
machinery nnd facilities, tho box-making capacity of the Royal City Hills is
now fully 2,500 cases a day—thnt is
including all the various processes
from tho tree as it stands in the
forest tu the finished case as it
lies iu the huge stack; nnd it will
hardly bu necessary to say that the
establishment has been taxed to its
nil! capacity this season. On one occasion ten thousand boxes (not put together, however) woro turned out i.i
one day nud night! These were for
shipment up the northwest coast. To
assist the reader in realizing tho proportions this branch of industry is now
attaining, it mny bo mentioned that
this season upwards of n million feet
of lumber will be conutimed iu lhe
manufacture of these cases at the Royal City Milta, and so great iB the
demand that it will be found necossi\i*y
tu continue tho work during tho whole
year. ^

fCo,itiiin«I.)
"It is," ho answered, with considerable emphasis. ' 'It is no rond on which
for you to be alone at such an hour.
I could scarcely believe Mrs. Malleson
when she told mo you had gone to
walk homo and that without an escort.'"
"That shows plainly that you have a
great deal yot to learn about country
habits."
"I hope so, if that is one of them;
but "
"Arc you going this way ?" said Judith, pausing, as ho mado for n narrow
lane on thu right. "If we go this way
wu have lo cross the river, and thero is
no bridge, you know, only the stepping-stones.''
"Well, are you afraid? I thought
you were boasting of your country
habits. It is starlight; it is not quite
the cud of daylight yet. 'Th' hipping-
stanes/ as they call thom hero, are
solid, high, and dry; and my hand is a
firm ouo, I assure you."
Judith said nothing, tut followed
him down a lanoititoa-road which ran
through the bottom of the valley, beside the river for somo littlo distance,
till, where it was broad aud shallow, a
long line of stepping-stones led across
to the other side. It was a weird-
looking spot, hardly tempting to ouo
not used to such roads and such "short
cuts." Just below the stopping-stones,
too, was a ford, and a dangerous ford,
since to deviate but a few feet from its
courso meant—and had proved—certain death to horse, and man, by reason of a horrible deep bole shelving
suddenly down deep enough to bury
completely, as it had done more than
once, horse, driver and vehicle. Between the "hipping-stanes,"' towards
this grisly trap, tho water rushed
gurgling along; the bed of tho river
was too shallow and broken, the motion too incessant for the water to
-freeze. Judith paused as she stood by
tbe first stepping-stone while, after one
or two of the others, the remainder
faded and vanished, and the opposite
bank of tho stream was not discernible.
"It looks-1 never crossed them at
such nn hour, or when it wns so
dark—'! sho began,
"Are you afraid to trust yourself on
them—with mo J—Do you imaginu that
I should nnt share any accident wliich
might befall you ?'■
Ho offeree! hor his hand, and again
struck dumb, as it wero, Judith put
hers in it, and allowed him to lend her
■whither he would. The crossing of
the stepping-stones was a slow one,
but it was accomplished in safety and
in silence. They traversed, silently
also, the littlo lane at the other sido,
whioh led them to tho high road to
Yoresett, and when they wero once
more there, and slowly walking
through a littlo dark wood on either
-sido of tho wall, Aglionby slowly:
"Mra, Malleson tolls nib that you
think of leaving Yoresett.''
l,Yes. That is, I have wished to
leavo Yoresett for a long time. Now
I lmvo quite decided to do so, because
Mr. Malleson has been kind enough
to uso his intorcst with a friend to get
mo something to do."
"Ah ! I do not know that such
things always are kind. Mrs. Malleson said ahe was jealous of you," ho
added, with a forced laugh, "for Unit
you aud her husband bad secrets."
"In other words, you asked her
where I was going, and what I was
going to do, and sho could not tell
you."
"Quito true, though you put it in
as disagreeable a manner ns you can,
You consider my natural interest in
your movements to be impertinent."
"I never said so. I only kndw that,
considering what it was that Mr. Malleson. had to say to me, he did perfectly right not to speak of it to any one
until he had seen mo."
"Forgive me; but is it allowable to
ask what tlm work is which is to take
you nway from Yoresett—a fuct which
appears to cause you much rejoicing ?"
""•Oh, quite. I have no wish now to
make any Becvet of it. I was too happy
when Mr. Malleson told me of it."
"Is it something so delightful ? You
certainly try my patience to the utmost; but perhaps my assurance in
asking merits sumo such punishment."
"Not at all. I am going to livo at
Irkford."
"At Irkford!" First thero was a ring
of astonishment, then one of irrepressible pleasure, in his tones. "So am
I."
"Yes, I suppose so."
"J^ut may I not know what you are
going to do at Irkford?"
Shu told him, briefly enough, and
concluded:
"So you seo I shall Ir-egin at the beginning, and who knows where I shall
end : 1 nm vain enough to fancy that
somu time I mny rise quito high—tu
the position of matron, or lady-super-
in tendon t—whn knows /"
He had lot her give hor account of
her future lifo and duties without uttering a word of Interruption. He had
heard her nut, oven to tbo utterance
of tho ambitious dream of tho last son-
tenco, and thon hu said, quite composedly: •»
"I am surprised at Mr. Malleson
proposing such a monstrous thing to
you, even in a jest. I fancied he had
mote sense. He nniHtbave known how
utterly impossible it was for you to accept it. Really, it was almost insulting to you. Ilut I suppose ho was trying ynu."
"Ynu aro strnngoly mistaken. I
hnve Dr. Wontworth's address in my
purso, and shall write to hiin to-night
nnd proposo to go to bim in a week
from now."
"You aro jesting," ho snid; and still
ho spoko composedly, though not so
quietly as nt lirst,
"I never waa in moro solemn and
Htundfnst enrnest in my life."
Another pause.
Thoy walked on side by side, and
Judith imagined that he had dismissed
the subject from bin mind as not con-
coming him —as a wilful woman's
whim. Suddenly sho wns startled by
hearing him say, in a voice which she
hardly recognised:
"You must not; you shall not! I
will not lmvo itl"
His voico quiver-ad uncontrollably.
Judith caught hor breath; her heart
•mve n great bound; at *ne same in
stant conscience cried, loudly and imperatively: "That is wrong! Stop it at
once!"
"You must be dreaming, Mr. Aglionby. to Bpeak to me in such a manner," she said coldly.
And that wns all that resolution
could at first summon to the assistance
of conscience. When the head is sick
and the limbs fail, it is hard to march
onward with unchanged front.
"Dreaming, am IV ho snid, with a
Bhort, angry laugh. 't(I wish to heaven
I could think I was !"
They wore passing a small lonely
farm by the wayside. A bri-ght light
shone from o'ne'df''"ElWwindows. He
stopped abruptly, and Judith stopped
too, as if she had been a part of himself.
"Look nt mo!" he bade her, in a
voico choked with anger and sorrow.
"Look at me,and tell me again, if you
can, that yon intend to do this thing."
"Assuredly, I am resolved to do it,"
she answered, raising her eyes to his
faco, and speaking steadily, coldly, decidedly.
Sho could, however, scarce onduro
to encounter the glance sho met; it-
was so wrathful, and withal so woebegone—nor to contemplate his countenance, so palo was it, so transfigured.
"I intend itl" she repeated, averting
her eyes, and speaking with desperate
haste. "And more than that, I look
forward to it as my salvation, as to a
deliverer from a life which I loathe,
and from n burden which has grown
groator than I can bear."
"It must not be!" said lie in a passionate whisper. "Judith, it must not
be. You must give this up—indeed
you must."
"I quite fail to see why... .and indeed, I beg you will nob enter into
your reasons," she added hastily, seeing ho was about to speak. "My mind
is made up and you can have no possible right to meddle in the matter."
Sho spoke oven more decidedly, but
thrilled as sho remembered that once
or twice already sho had made up her
mind, without Aglionby's having boon
much affected by the fact.
"You have treated me hardly fair
from the first," be said, aiul they woro
still standing in tbe road, speaking iu
low, vehement tones. "You have exacted from me submission iu things
whero most men would havo refused
to yield it. You have forbidden me to
enter your houso, to be on friendly
terms with you, to do the barest justice to your mother, or yuur sisters, or
yourself. Justice! You refuse to allow
mo to attempt oven any palliation of
the manner in which thoy have been
treated. You have ulready extracted
from my inheritance overy grain of
pleasure whicli it would have given me. '
and now, to crown all, you turn upon
mc, and coolly inform me that you—
i/oii, to save whom from a moment's
uneasiness I would givo all that I was
worth "
"You have no right to say-that to
mc," said Judith proudly.
"My wrongs give me aright to say
that—and more than that. To crown
all, I say, you inform me that you are
going to undertake a tusk which would
make a strong man reooil—to bo a servant among servants, until this doctor,
who miyht bo a pope in whom you
placed implicit reliance, sees lit in his
good pleasure to order you to go to a
hospital, and immolate yourself within
its walls, amongst horrors of every
kind — amongst loathsome wounds,
small-pox, fever, perhaps. If thoy order you to go and nurse a man clown
with black typhus, you must do it-
can you deny it ?"
"Deny it—no! Why should I r"
"All this, and all sorts of nameless
horrors besides. Any day you may
tako some horrible disease and diu of
it. God! it makes iny brain reel, only
to imagine it! I wish I could have
choked Malleson before bo ever wrote
his disgraceful letter to this cursed
doctor.
Judith had moved on, too agitated,
too overpowered nnd excited to stand
still. Sho haft forgotten by now that
it was wrong in him to address her
thus. Sho folt only the strong, overpowering joy of finding IroTself first
and foremost in his heart—indubitably, undeniably first.
"And you expect me still tamely to
submit to such a proceeding ?" ho continued vehemently. "What do you
take mo for? A spaniel? A calf? A
fool? You in such a condition; i. woman liko you! You must bo mad-
mad, porfectly mad! And Malleson—"
He stopped.
She was hurrying onward, her hands
clasped, her head bent, her heart beating tumultously, us she heard his hot,
rapid words. What was sho to do?
What to say? She could not stop to
consider many alternatives, if they existed. One thing only remained clear
to her mind; she saw it, and strove toward it, as it were, it was all that she
could discern through the tide of emotion which threatened to sweep her
away on its rushing waves—and that
one thing wns the conviction that she
must carry out her purpose Not for
a second must sbo entertain tho idea
of giving it up. Sho must answer no
arguments, notice no side-lights, no
incidental modifications of the case,
but hold to the one thing, and it would
bring her through tho peril she was
'Do tbey know—your mother and
sisters!" ho asked, in a changed, yet
eager tone.
"Not yet. Thoy will when I go in.
They know I am going away as soon
as T hear of employment."
"Then, as they do not yet know
thnt you have heard of it, your giving
it up can bo no disappointment to
them. IJs to me! Promise mo to givo
it up, to say nothing to your mother
and sisters; and when wo got to Yoresett, I will ride hack to the rectory,
and tell Malleson that you have changed your mind, nnd do not wish him to
take any further stops in tbo matter."
"Mr, Aglionby, you are dreaming
now. I shall do nothing of the kind
for I am quite determined to go to
Irkford."
